MainConcept AG licenses transcoding applications to Panasonic DivX Inc.'s wholly owned subsidiary, MainConcept AG, has announced that Professional Systems AV B.U. of Panasonic AVC Networks company (Panasonic) will distribute a pair of custom-developed transcoding solutions for IT-based production systems supporting the latest HD codecs for the popular P2HD broadcast and video production platform AVC-Intra and for newly developed professional and consumer video production platform AVCHD.
The two transcoding applications offer convenient transcoding of the AVC-Intra and AVCHD formats into the ever-popular DVCPRO format and are the result of close technical collaboration between Panasonic and MainConcept. The new applications give Panasonic Broadcast's customers a ready-made, cost effective transcoding solution with time-to-market advantages of not having to develop the applications in-house.

"We are proud to expand our partnership with Panasonic and to provide them with high quality, custom developed transcoder applications for AVCHD and AVC-Intra," said Masashi Nemoto, President of MainConcept Japan. "The continued evolution of camcorder technology and the ongoing introduction of new HD video formats has greatly increased the demand for highly specialized, customer-specific video encoding, decoding, and transcoding solutions. We are looking forward to powering Panasonic's continued success by offering customized solutions for broadcast and professional users supporting the P2 based camcorder platform."

"Working with MainConcept to develop and deploy these two new IT-based transcoding solutions in support of the P2 platform has been highly beneficial" said Tadao Shimozuru, Director of Professional AV Systems Business Unit, Panasonic AVC Networks Company. "We are pleased that those two transcoding applications offer our customers much more flexibility for P2 workflow."
